1987 Chevrolet Camaro IROC Z-28 (Nilda's Car)
Last updated Mar 29, 2011
The car was sold to my son when he was about 18 years old. The car was in very rough condition. He lost interest and was going to sell it. My wife liked the car. To help our son out we purchased it from him. We are now the third owners. We have been working on it ever since. He became an automotive painter and painted the car for us. All body parts were removed and painted seperately.
